Member Interview with Patricia Betancort Ramos who with her partner Jose Riverol owns Picnic cafe/bar in Puerto Del Carmen.
LBA Hola Patricia, Thanks for meeting us, we know things are particularly hectic for you right now, as well as owning Picnic you have another full time occupation?
PBR Yes that’s correct; I am a fully qualified Architect, working for a practice in Puerto Calero. We work on lots of large projects including Club La Santa and I am currently working on the new Marina in Arrecife. So there are lots of challenges, but very exciting and enjoyable. Last week for instance I was in Madrid sourcing new materials for the Marina project. On a personal level I am also involved in a project with Teguise Ayuntamiento creating a cultural centre. I also support and dedicate as much time as possible to Tri W.W.W. world winner’s way, helping people with disabilities through sport.
LBA Wow, that must keep you really busy, how to you manage to run Picnic so successfully?
PBR Well we have had Picnic for just over 3 years, so we have a great understanding of the business and its needs. My partner Jose spends a lot of time here, and we are great believers in teamwork. We motivate the staff and have lots of team meetings, getting everyone involved. We are very customer focused and strive to provide a comfortable environment for both the staff and clients.
LBA Can we ask where you were born?
